Signal Mountain Campground - New For 2021: All Campsites Reservations Only
New For 2021: All Campsites Reservations Only
Starting in 2021 all sites in the Signal Mountain and Lizard Creek Campgrounds will be available by reservations only through the www.recreation.gov website. Campers wishing to reserve a campsite at the Signal Mountain or Lizard Creek Campgrounds will be able to do so by visiting www.recreation.gov. Reservations are available on a rolling six-month basis (6 months in advance of your arrival date).
Starting in 2021 first-come, first-served campsites will no longer be available in Grand Teton National park and all campsites will be occupied by reservation only. Reservations will only be available through Recreation.gov and will not be available through Signal Mountain Lodge via, phone, email, in-person or at the campgrounds.
Campsite reservations are expected to fill quickly, and visitors are strongly encouraged to plan ahead. Campers must create an account on the Recreation.gov website prior to be able to make campground reservations. Those who already have an account are encouraged to confirm their login and password information in advance.

This new reservation system is in direct response to years of public requests for a reservation system in the park’s campgrounds. This system is being implemented as a collaborative effort between the National Park Service and park concessioners. As we move to this new system in our campgrounds we are confident it will improve visitor services.

Overview The Signal Mountain Campground is centrally located inside Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) and provides a convenient basecamp for accessing all the park has to offer. This 80-site campground is located adjacent to Signal Mountain Lodge which provides many amenities you might need for your National Park adventures. The campground sits on the southeast shore of Jackson Lake and offers easy access to the lake waters and short walks to unparalleled views of the Teton Range. The area is frequented by various park wildlife, large and small as well as a variety of bird species. The Signal Mountain Campground is normally one of the first campgrounds to open and last to close in the park and can often have lingering snowpack during the opening weeks after heavy winters and possible early wintery weather at the end of the season. Due to the variability of weather in the Tetons, visitors should come prepared, especially during the months of May and October.
Facilities The campground offers tent camping and pull-in/back-in sites for RVs or trailers up to 30 feet. This campground offers 24 sites with 30 and 50-amp hookups which are popular during the early and late season. The campground is organized in three loops with the first loop mainly offering electrical hookup sites, and the last loop being “generator free”. Tent pads are available at select sites and all sites have picnic tables, fire rings and bear-proof food storage boxes. Parking pads and areas for tents can vary greatly in size and care should be given when selecting a site. The campground provides a dump station, trash collection and recycling receptacles. Four conveniently located comfort stations provide campers with potable water, flush toilets, camper sinks and hot water. The campground is part of the Signal Mountain Lodge facility which provides a number of additional amenities including token operated showers and laundromat, as well as internet access and on-site cell tower service. Other amenities include a general store (groceries, gas, camping supplies, coffee bar and grab and go food options), restaurants, bar, gift shops, guided float trips, guided fishing trips, boat rentals, cabin rentals and more.
The maximum stay permitted at Signal Mountain Campground is 14 nights, and the maximum cumulative stay between all park campgrounds is 30 nights.

A maximum sliding window of up to 7 days can be reserved beyond the 6 month rolling window.
